Ex-Indian pacer RP Singh bids adieu to cricket

Former Indian fast bowler Rudra Pratap Singh has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.

Announcing the same on his official Twitter handle, the 32-year-old said that there is no easy way to say goodbye, but added that it is the right time to call it quits.

“Today as I hang [up] my boots and call it a day I wish to remember and give thanks to each and everyone who made this journey possible,” RP Singh wrote on Wednesday.

“Even as I write this, there are conflicting emotions inside me. No matter how much one prepares for this day, there is no easy way to bid goodbye. But somewhere inside there is a voice that tells you – it’s time. And that for me is today,” he added.

The pacer, who made his international debut during a one-day match against Zimbabwe in 2005, played a crucial role in India’s title-clinching campaign at the 2007 T20 World Cup. Singh was the second highest wicket-taker of the prestigious tournament as he bagged a total of 12 wickets in seven matches with an economy rate of 6.33.

In Tests, Singh debuted against Pakistan in Faisalabad in 2006 and bagged the `Man of the Match` award for scalping a five-wicket haul on a flat track.

Singh played a total of 14 Tests and took 40 wickets with an economy rate of 3.98.
